…and they’ve been well and truly road-tested by all three crew members. I think we have the seal of approval.
It was useful to make two baskets. One came out a bit tighter than the other, and that turned out to be the best one. This is because, over a few days’ constant use, they stretch. So the looser basket has ended up a bit on the floppy side, and the tighter basket is just about right. Also, as I knitted the base more tightly, the sides appear taller.
The crew spent hours lounging around in their new beds, which enabled us to take lots of scrumptious photos of them. My partner is a professional photographer (thesheffieldlens.com) – I am sure you can tell which are his pictures and which one is off my iphone!
I am excited to make the next batch. I might try a different colour, or at least, a different sheep….
